The Smell Of The Greasepaint And Big Boots


I don't know about you, but I think there is something quite sinister about clowns. I know they are meant to be funny, with their red nose, big boots and custard pie routines. But to me they aren't to be trusted. Hidden behind all that make-up and bright clothes beats a heart of pure evil. There are quite a few stories of clowns that were bad, The Joker from Batman & Stephen King's It spring to mind. The fear is called coulrophobia and people of all ages seem to suffer with it.

This one is called Pogo, and was entertaining the kids in the market square today, which for them means the end of the holidays & back to school on Monday.
